The original Galaxy Beam never took off in terms of sales and popularity despite being a good option for those looking for a pocket projector, but in line with Samsung’s tradition of launching successors of basically every device, it looks like a Galaxy Beam 2 is under development. The device has been recently certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent of FCC) as the Samsung SM-G3858, which also lists its specifications and includes a few pictures that reveal the conspicuous bump as a result of the projector on the back, though details on the projector itself are not mentioned.
In terms of specs, the new Galaxy Beam features a 4.66-inch display of WVGA (800×480) resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, and a microSD slot, inside a body that measures 134.5 x 70 x 11.7mm and weighs 165g. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, though this will likely change to at least Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (well, hopefully.) The projector will likely have a higher output resolution than before (the original Beam had a 640 x 360 projector resolution), and while the images show China Mobile’s logo on the back of the device, an international version of the device is more than probable.
Anyone interested in the Galaxy Beam 2?
